Election day: NYTimes feels (and charts) your pain

The Times has a page where you can actually select the emotion you are feeling most!

Readers can update with their emotions every thirty minutes -- they won't let our moods swing THAT quickly -- and you can see the different emotions that McCain and Obama supporters are feeling in a kind of wavelike graphic. Neat?

Interestingly, there isn't much difference between the groups yet. I'm sure the difference will be interesting to trace as the polls start coming in. Unfortunately, I won't get to observe: I'll be internet-less at the Obama rally in Grant Park. Damn ... Can a blogger get a press pass and a Blackberry, please? That'd be sweet.
